I have a few things to get off my chest that I must rant about! I needed to do this last night but ran out of time.
I am so tired of working with stupid people. I swear I am a magnet for them at work. I must have a sign that says "Emily is a patient, loving, kind, an even temperament person who does not mind working with stupid people." No matter what job or position I am in they flock to me like a moth to a candle. What am I supposed to learn? To be more patient, to be more understanding, to be more humble???? I am just amazed at the lack of common sense and the ability to read through an email and not understand what seems so black and white to me. Or to not have the decency to send a cancellation for a meeting instead of wasting someones time and not tell them you can't make it. Yesterday I reached my max of stupid people!
Let me paint you a picture...you are at a store and all of a sudden your bladder hits you and you must go right now. You quickly walk to the front of the store to use the restroom. Walking into the restroom you see only a stall or two open and dive into the first one. Not looking you sit down and instead of feeling relief your bum feels damp. Why didn't you think to look before you sat down?! You hope it's water and not someones urine. You stand up and dry your bum off and turn around to flush the toilet and it sprays onto the seat and gets your foot wet too. At least you know it was water (or you feel a lot more confident it is).
Let me paint you another similar picture...you are in a restroom that is a one stall restroom and you get up after you are done doing your business (#1). You reach for the handle on the toilet and it flushes barely. So you try again but still nothing goes down. You wait a moment so you can let the water reservoir fill up. Again you try a third time and you think it is going to go and you are sadly mistaken. Isn't the third time supposed to be the charm? Okay fine you hold the handle down now and wait until all the toilet paper is gone. Finally you wash up and leave the restroom and someone is waiting in the hall and looks at you funny. You think to yourself if only you knew what you were getting yourself into! Good luck flushing that toilet lady! I hope someone looks at you like that!
Have you ever experienced either of these types of experiences? Seriously can't we have a toilet that you push the handle and it flushes and when it does flush not spray everywhere so that the toilet gets wet.
Anyways what is the deal with this heat? I do not live in Idaho or Utah or any desert for a reason! I like even cool temperatures. Don't get me wrong I love the sunshine but a nice 70-75 degree range is perfect. Not 85-105! I was mowing my yard two days ago and was doing okay and then I walked into my house and sat down at the computer for a few moments and almost immediately I felt sweat rolling down my backside. EEEWWWWWW!! I think an investment in central air conditioning is a wise investment for our home. Even if we don't get all that many hot days I rather not sweat to death when it is warm out. We have certainly helped to boost the economy. With the heat we have not wanted to cook so we eat out, go shopping to stay cool and drive around just to be in the AC. It's been a spendy couple of days. When we got home yesterday our thermometer said it was 90 degrees in our room and 103 outside I believe and 85 in the hallway. Crazy!!! I had to sleep upside down to get cool enough to go to sleep it made it so I was closer to the fan. Jared doesn't like it when I do that because my feet are in his face and let's face it I am not a still sleeper. I am a mover and a shaker but at least I haven't shoved my toe in his mouth unlike someone I know. :P
Okay last rant for the day! Sorry no good transitions for any of them...I love technology I really do! I mean I get to share information with people via an email instead of having to make 10 phone calls, I can research information on how to get wax off a wall, I can call my husband when lost in a new state, and so many other things. But when they don't work it's the end of the world as we know it. I work at Microsoft and I have been going crazy lately by the issues I have been having with my computer. I will receive emails late like 3-4 hours or get someones response to an email before I get the original email. Miss an email completely or my computer will freeze. My job is solely dependent upon my computer when working so when it does freeze then I am stuck staring at it thinking or saying out loud "You stupid piece of junk!" Seriously I hate how dependent I have become upon technology some days. I go crazy when things don't work the right way and quickly when I want them to. I know take a deep breath Emily it's an inanimate object but it still gets to me.
I feel so much better getting that off my chest. That's such an interesting comment because it's not really on my chest it was just in my mind...anyways I feel better venting or ranting on.
